Here are some games that you can play at home to help you with your 'Tricky Words', 100 high frequency words and your spellings. Please let us know if you have a go at any of the games and email Mrs Khan or Mrs Buckley. 

Tricky Word/Phoneme (sound) Spotter activity

Here is an activity that is easy to set up at home. All you need is a piece of paper and some colours! On a piece of paper write some tricky words. They can be written more than once, in different colours and in different sizes. Someone then chooses a word for you to spot. It is your job to then spot, read and circle the word they have said. Remember, the word could be there more than once so make sure you have a good look and spot them all!


This can also be done when learning different sounds. On a piece of paper, write some words that have different sounds. In the example, there are words that have the 'ay', 'ea' and 'ie' sound. Someone then selects a sound. It is your job to then spot, read and circle all the words that have that sound. You could choose a different colour for each sound. 



Magic Bag 

In your last Home Learning packs Mrs Buckley and Mrs Khan sent you a little surprise, your very own Magic Bag! We also put in a pack of pictures and words for you to use in your Magic Bag activities. 







Please practise reading and spelling the 1oo high frequency words.
